After making waves with their performance, the Indian women’s cricket team reached the set of one of the most famous reality TV shows in this country, Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). It was a special episode where the Indian eves participated in the game. Along with the Indian skipper Mithali Raj, players like Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut, Veda Krishnamurthy, star bowler Jhulan Goswami and Deepti Sharma too were present in the show.
The host of the show, Mr Amitabh Bachchan, gave a warm welcome to the women in blue and applauded their phenomenal performance in the recently concluded ICC Women’s World Cup held in England and Wales. As learned from several reports, whatever the prize money that the players earned on KBC would be donated to the Institute of Social Development.
After the show, the opener of the Indian women’s team and apparently a national crush of many, Smriti Mandhana took a moment to share a picture captured on the sets of KBC. She shared a picture in which the cricketers could be seen standing with Mr Bachchan. She also captioned the image as,”Had a marvelous time being on the sets of KBC & working with wonderful people. Special thanks to @SonyTV for an amazing experience.”
